Great trail, has it all, streams, boulders, views, flowers, etc. No sight of snow and mud today, only saw one person and the tracks of two more today, going early has it's benefits around the Gorge! Pretty steep and very rocky so best not to bring the kids or pups, and be sure to bring the bug spray.

Did this on May 7 2017. Gorgeous day. Great views of Adams (way up) and helens (at top). Actual summit has nice view of gorge to west. Continue on to get a view of helens. Be sure to have plenty of water. There were still patches of snow. Watch out for devils club. Lots of downed trees so take your time.

it's longer , steeper and higher than Dog its a good training mountain I would rate it better than 3 stars but it's 90% forest with little pay out at the end 2 hrs 15 min up and 1 hr 28 min down

Fantastic training hike that is moderate to difficult for the experienced hiker. A lot of switchbacking, some scattered rock/shingles and at some points the trail gets pretty narrow. That combined with heavy vegetation made it a bit difficult with trekking poles as they would get snagged on innocent ferns! Portland hikers guide advised about 2 miles of continuous climbing, but I think the trail was about 80% climbing. I went on a Sunday and hit the trailhead at exactly 10 am, parking lot was full (only about 10-12 spots at the John B Yeon TH) but the road 10 feet away had plenty of shoulder parking. Great views of the gorge and Mt. Adams. I only encountered about 7 people total in the 6 hours I was there, and met some really cool folks! Jason - if you see this, glad you got the AT app I recommended! A definite must do for the Gorge trail blazer!
